plastic trash

The problem is that "industrial development" brings plastic bottles and plastic containers in country that do not have any trash collection system, let along recycling.­

Most people in developing countries are used to throwing garbage anywhere because in the past, most garbage was compostable, so it was ok.­ But now garbage is mostly made of plastic, and people still do the same, the throw it away anywhere.­ there are no trash bins in cities, and very few cities have trash collection.­ Sometimes people pile-up trash and burn it, which is not good either when the trash contains lots of plastic.­

My feeling is that corporations should be banned from selling plastic containers and plastic bags in countries that do not have trash collection and plastic recycling.­ In those countries, those corporations should subsidize plastic recycling and fund education programs if they want to sell their plastic junk.­

But that requires political will and most local people are quite poor and they would not want to pay more for plastic stuff in order to fund its recycling.­

wow that is alot of bottles and other stuff that is thrown out and that can be recyled and u can get money for it so reycle and get money for it we can make a cange in the world=]
